If you'd imagined Robert Pattinson as a goodie two-shoes at school, he's got some earth-shattering news for you: The 31-year-old actor has just admitted that he was once expelled for stealing pornographic magazines and selling them at school.

"I've never actually said this before. I was stealing porno magazines and selling them at school," the Twilight star confessed to Howard Stern (opens in new tab). "No one knew at all what to do with them, though... I'd sell them for a lot of money."

"I used to go in and take, like, one or two, and then put them in my bag. I was in my school uniform when I was doing it, and it was kind of risky. At the end, I got so cocky that I would take the entire rack."

But he soon got his comeuppance when he was caught by an aggrieved newsagent staff member.

"I remember the guy who worked in the store shouting, like, 'Hey!' and then my two friends ran off, and I turned around, like, 'What?' I walked back up to him," R-Patz recalled.

"I hadn't zipped up my bag,. This guy is pulling out all these porno magazines—and it was when porn used to have, like, VHS tapes in the plastic sheet with it—and he's pulling all these things out, and I was sitting there humiliated with all the old people looking at me disgusted."

He then revealed that the man contacted his school—big mistake wearing your uniform, Rob—and turned him in.

"Basically, a couple of days later, everything fell down," he said. "Basically every single one of my friends snitched on me, literally, across the board."

During his interview with Howard, Robert was also asked whether he was engaged to FKA Twigs (still the greatest story ever told (opens in new tab)) and replied coyly: "Kind of."

Who says romance is dead, eh?
